Well I have the black box in. Was painless. Did a little testing on a telephone pole. That's about it. Headed to the dunes tomorrow. Pics to come.

If I were ever to get the cash for it, I would go with a Black Box also. I've also been looking at Offroad Design's new Magnum Box which is a little shorter and especially for the NP205 transfer case.

Not really an option for you Dusty unless you swapped to a Ford NP205, but it's an interesting piece either way.

Good points. For me the Magnum might be the way to go since 3/4" is still a decent amount when dealing with a Ramcharger wheelbase and D60s. It will probably never happen anyway but I can dream, lol.

How is it wheeling with a stick and an oil burner on the rocks?

Love the build.

Tempted to swap a 4BT I have access to into my TJ I'm building. Tempting, but not sure how much yet.

Hey Dobbers,
You've got me all wound up with the 2 piece d/s. Looks pretty slick. What is your wheelbase about? Roughly how did you go about sourcing your 2 piecer? What is the pricey version vs. the budget version? Carrier bearing types? Are there any cons to this setup?

Yours is the first I've seen and never thought to consider it, but now am b/c I'm a QCSB.

Thanks!

btw -- more updates on wheeling it yo!

It's seems to be the natural evolution of these things. Might as well do it now if you have the itch rather than throw money at broken axle parts when you really want something else.
